Jayne Walters Scrapbook, 1934-1940

Scope and Content Note

The Jayne Walters Scrapbook consists of materials assembled by Walters during her student years at Oregon State College in the late 1930s. The scrapbook, and loose materials that are housed separately, include clippings, publications, ephemera, correspondence, and a few photographs. The scrapbook documents student life during this period as well as Walters' membership in the Alpha Chi Omega sorority, editorial work on student publications, service as president of Theta Sigma Phi, and a trip to Chicago for a Theta Sigma Phi conference.

The clippings document student activities and include articles written or edited by Walters for the campus newspaper. Publications include commencement programs, football game programs, issues of the Lamplighter, and Barometer style guides. Of special note is a media guide for the 1937 Oregon State College football team.

Ephemera includes drawings of Walters and fellow student Irene, certificates, dance cards, homecoming memorabilia, name tags, postcards and travel memorabilia, ribbons, and ticket stubs. Menus from several local Corvallis and campus restaurants are of note; these include Eilers', the Electric Lunch, and Wagner's. The correspondence consists of notes and cards received by Walters and well as Walters' correpondence with the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association seeking employment. The photographs are primarily portrait prints of other Oregon State students.
